Remote electronic units are used in aircraft and spacecraft platforms, in a variety of applications such as landing gear, flight control surfaces, fuel systems, and ice protection systems. Due to increasing deliveries of aircraft, globally, and the rapidly expanding aviation sector, the aircraft industry is set to remain a significant end user for players in the global remote electronic unit market. In 2018, the aircraft platform segment held the largest share in the REU market, accounting for around four-fifth of the total market share by revenue, and is set to expand moderately to reach the ~US$ 2.8 Bn mark by the end of the forecast period of 2027.

The application of REUs in the maintenance of spacecraft, which accounts for a mere one-fifth of the total revenue of the market, is set to expand at a slow pace of ~3% during the forecast period. Recent years have seen phenomenal advancements in space exploration, with multiple companies developing advanced tech in the aviation industry in the race to get further than their competitors.  However, due to the sluggish pace of growth of this industry, its impact on the global remote electronic unit market is expected to be slow.

Rising Air Travel Contributes to Market Expansion in a Big Way

In recent years, there has been a rise in air travel activities, globally, which has significantly contributed to the growth of the remote electronic unit market. Consequently, there has been a spike in the demand for remote electronic units, particularly from developing countries in Asia Pacific. Stakeholders in the remote electronic unit are taking advantage of this trend and ramping up their production capabilities to cater to the rising air traffic volume, which has had a positive impact on the growth of the REU market.

Enhancing Digital Fly-by-wire Systems to Shape Further Evolution of Market

Fly-by-wire systems that replace conventional manual flight controls have been around since the first half of the 20th century in the form of analog systems, designed to increase the ease of control over an aircraft. They eliminate the complexity of the mechanical circuit of electromechanical flight control systems. Digital fly-by-wire systems that were developed as a step above analog systems, are being updated as a fast pace, as the demand for fuel-efficient aircraft and efficiency in flight control has become the focus of product innovation. The fly-by-wire systems that are being used now offer the benefit of performance reliability and safety, and increased efficiency of the flight under normal conditions.

With modern fly-by-wire systems evolving into intelligent flight control systems, this is set to have a significant impact on the further evolution of the global remote electronic unit market during the forecast years.
